The Zoo Med Desert Lighting Combo Pack is a perfect solution for providing heat and bright white visible light, as well as UVB, for desert reptiles to maintain good health.
Ectothermic reptiles rely on external sources such as the sun for warmth, as they are unable to produce their own body heat. They utilize this heat energy to maintain their bodily functions, digest food and stay healthy. Therefore, heat lamps are necessary to provide the heat required by reptiles.
To ensure that your pet is receiving the correct temperatures, measure the temperature using the Zoo Med ReptiTemp Digital Infrared Thermometer at their basking area.
This kit does not come with a blub that produces UVB.
